This year, Ukraine is represented by 16 nominees. Those are mostly the projects in the category of residential houses, and also a Theater in Podil (Teatr na Podoli) as "Culture Architecture" and The Space of Synagogues in the category of "Religious Architecture."
The "Space of Synagogues" project is an initiative to commemorate the history of Jews in Lviv and raise awareness on common urban history and common heritage among Lviv citizens themselves and tourists. The architect of the project was Franz Reschke, a winner of an international architectural contest for Jewish memorial sites in Lviv, as well as Sophie Jahnke, an author of the "Perpetuation" installation. The project documents were finalized by a Ukrainian architect Yuriy Stoliarov.
